40 Swine Flu Cases Now Reported in U.S.
Date:4/27/2009

Health officials checking persons entering U.S. for signs of sickness

MONDAY, April 27 (HealthDay News) -- The number of confirmed cases of swine flu in the United States has doubled to 40, with all the new cases coming from a New York City high school that had previously reported eight cases of the infectious disease, U.S. health officials said Monday.

"Later today, we will be releasing a new travel advisory for Mexico," he added. "This is out of an abundance of caution, and we will be recommending that nonessential travel to Mexico be avoided."

Mexico is reporting as many as 1,900 possible swine flu infections and as many as 149 deaths.
